I just read of your father’s passing in the Holy Cross Alumni magazine. Upon reading the obituary I thought what a beautiful, amazing man and father. I’m so sorry for your loss. Best, Marty Eichenlaub
Our condolences to the family during this time of sorrow. May these word give you comfort and hope. Revelation 21:3,4 “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away” As it did our family.
I am sorry for your loss!
I am sorry to hear of the loss of your father. WOW 98. I know you will have a lifetime of memories to share with his grand children. Mary and I are praying for you and your family.
Mike..Sorry to hear about your Dad’s passing. Chick was always a treat to be around and a great guy. Remember the good times at Lookout Bowl . He will be missed by those who knew him and my prayers are with you and your family.
Terry and all of the LaFever Family: So sorry for the loss of your Father. He sounded like a great man and an over achiever! Those we love who pass away live on in us through our memories and our character
So regret that we cannot be with the family at this time of sorrow.
You will be missed Uncle Chick-big brother
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. May your happy memories of him bring you peace and comfort. You have our deepest sympathy. May he rest in peace.

We moved into our first house right next to Chick & Rose in 1984 and they immediately welcomed us and began treating us like “one of the kids”. I always thought of Chick as my “Latonia dad” as he was always there to scrape off my car windshield in the winter or take my garbage can back from the curb. My favorite “Chick” memory is calling him over one day while John was at work because I was afraid someone was in our basement–turns out it was just a bird and he used his jacket to catch it and take it outside! I will miss seeing him at the bank and hearing his story of how he and Rose met. May they enjoy their reunion in Heaven. John & Cindy Kennedy
Dear Char, Mike, & Family,
MY deepest sympathy and prayers on the passing of your father. He leaves a legacy that all of you can be proud of. You will continue to be in my prayers. I am sure God is welcoming the warrior into His Kingdom. God Bless, Dick
Mike and Family
We are so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. We know how it feels since Barb lost her dad last January, and I lost my mom last August. We know in our hearts, God has a special place in heaven for your dad. Hope you are all okay!
